I recently installed a new tub spout with a hand-held shower head outlet built in since the last spout was leaking.
I took the old one off using a wrench, scrubbed the threads with a wire brush and some vinegar and then covered the threads with Teflon tape before screwing on the new tub spout.
It started to work fine until I started to take my shower. After a couple of minutes, with the shower head spraying with the water nob all the way up, (I found the temperature doesn't have much to do with it), the water pressure will just suddenly stop. No water comes through the shower head or the tub spout until I turn the water all the way off and press the diverter down.
I can shower with it but only with about 50% of the nob raised and only some water coming through the head. Is there somthing I did wrong or did I just buy a broken tub spout.
